'Superman' actress Kate Bosworth graces the February cover of Vogue magazine. In the magazine she opens up about her relationship with Orlando Bloom, why she shed so much weight, and her new love. Here are some highlights from the interview...

On her famous relationship with ex-boyfriend Orlando Bloom:

"Orlando and I met when we were kids. Blue Crush hadn't come out. Lord of the Rings hadn't come out. ... He was the first big heartbreak. ... First love: You feel like it's the be-all and end-all. ... To put as little pressure on the relationship you're in is very important. I regret that it was too intense for both of us."

On the fact that they are still friends:

"The fact that I'm very close with my past relationships is something I pride myself on. My mom is still close to her first husband. It's nice to be able to enjoy someone in a different form."

On losing 12 pounds from stress, which she attributed to dealing with an illness in the family:

"Whenever anything happens that's very painful or stressful, we all lose weight — my mother, my aunt, my grandmother. ... I honestly thought something was wrong with me. ... I was concerned for my health and my fans, the public. I would have said, don't look at this as the standard of some kind of beauty and health. [It was] a very dark time in my life."

On meeting current beau, model/musician James Rousseau at the Marc Jacobs after-party:

"I looked like a mess. I always ask him why he didn't turn and walk away. He had no idea who I was. He said, 'You're and actress? You're not Kate Hudson, are you?' For a little while there he called me 'Miss Hudson' as a joke. [Afterward] we left and sang Dylan songs at Maggie's Pub. Sitting on a bar stool, having a beer. He saw the potential. He wanted to fix me in a little way. And to be quite honest, he did. He was such a ray of light in my life."
